This quarterly displays before and after pictures of specific sites throughout the Rutland region. Many features change as time progresses, and this can be seen clearly through the camera's lens. For example, what was a skyscraper at the time in Vermont could be found on Merchants Row at the old Henry Baxter Bank. The old Bates House, which burned down, exemplifies the economic boom that was happening in 1876. These photos prove the line, "a picture is worth a thousand words."
